SURPRISE! 

Surprises are great, especially 
when missing class is involved! 
Such was the case Friday, May 5, 
when it was announced at an 
"emergency" meeting of the entire 
school that classes would be sus- 
pended for the rest oi: the day for 
an unscheduled outing at Hack. 
Sponsored by the Student Govern- 
ment and received with hoops and 
hollers, the day turned out to be 
one of the most successful excur- 
sions of the year. The unexpected- 
ness, together with the remoteness 
of Huck, provided needed release 
from the tension of those last weeks 
of the semester. Good food, boat 
rides, long walks, quiet, softball, 
e\en fantastic human pyramids, 
and for many, sleep — provided 
cNcryone with a great time (and 
for some, lots of exercise and free 
rides as one of the buses broke 
down — surprise!)

On May 4 and 5, the Jet Maskers dren of the Salem area: Susanna 



of Gulf Park presented "The Cru- 
cible." An atmosphere of witchery 
haunted the auditorium, as the 
curtain was opened on the strange- 
ly ill Betty Paris, played by Sheryl 
Fillingim. Completely puzzled by 
her sudden illness was her father. 



Wallcott (Noel Rae Coward), 
Mercy Lewis (Mary McGinnis), 
and Mary Warren (Peggy Young). 
It was through the pretention of 
these children that many innocent 
people were sentenced to death. 
Other members of the cast were: 



Reverend Paris, portrayed by David Isabel von Wachter and Mike Rich 
Kidley. Tituba, played by Mary 
Lee LaCour, their faithful Negro 
maid, was the first to confess com- 
municating with the devil. Rev- 
erend Paris' niece, Abigail Wil- 
liams, played by Carol Daniels, the Court Clerk; Tommy Meek as 
adds a bit of spice to the story Deputy-Governor Danforth; and 
through her love for the hero, John Jenny Losh as Sara Good, one of 
Proctor, portrayed by James Gard- the women accused of witchery, 



as Mr. and Mrs. Putnam; Ann 
Burke and Wayne Shaver as a 
very old Christian couple, Rebecca 
and Frances Nurse; Meime Metz- 
lan as Giles Cory; Toby Gold as 



ner. Yet, John Proctor faithfully 
keeps his wife Elizabeth, played by 
Rosemary Hogan. Led astray by 
y\bigail Williams were several chil- 



Directed by Miss Helen Picking, 
with Mr. Anderson's set design 
and technical supervision, the play 
was a tremendous success.

Class Day 



Class Day, a traditional part of 
the Commencement Weekend, was 
held under Friendship Oak on 
Saturday, May 27. For many jun- 
iors, the day began early as many 
went to Huckleberry Hill to gather 
gardenias and magnolias for the 
morning ceremony. As the music 
began, the Junior Class led the 
Class Day procession — each jun- 
ior, with a gardenia on her wrist, 
carrying a portion of the Magnolia 
Chain of Friendship. Seniors, at- 
tired in white dresses, walked 
down this aisle of friendship and 
ascended Friendship Oak for a last 
time as a class. 

The Vice President of the Senior 
Class, Miss Anne Kinney, pre- 
sented Friendship Oak to Miss 
Debbie Culloden, Vice President of 
the Junior Class, as a token of 
friendship, and extended an invi- 
tation to the juniors to ascend the 
platform as the Seniors of '67 de- 
scended. 

Miss Jane Friday, President of 
the Senior Class, placed the Sen- 
ior Robe around the shoulders of 
Miss Candy McDowell, Junior 
Class President, who accepted the 
challenge of responsible leadership 
for the class of '68. 

Miss Jane Friday presented to 
President Sadler a check for three 
hundred dollars to be used for lit- 
erary additions to Gulf Park's Li- 
brary, given in memory of Miss 
Ruth Schreiber and Dr. Richard G. 
Cox. Also, as part of the farewell 



gift, the Senior Class redecorated 
Senior Smoker. 

Class songs, the Cjulf Park Alma 
Mater and free-flowing tears char- 
acterized the conclusion of Class 
Day. Following this ceremony, 
students, parents, and guests were 
invited to Senior Smoker for an 
"Open House."

Aquettes, one of Gulf Park's 
most outstanding groups on cam- 
pus, presented "This Is My Coun- 
try" as a highlight of the Com- 
mencement Weekend. A hvige map 
of the United States set the "stage." 
Following a patriotic trend, the 
Aquettes recognized outstanding 
places of our Nation. Beginning 
their tour in New Orleans, "The 
Crescent City," the Aquettes trav- 
eled westward through the "Red 
River Valley." "On The Trail" 
their travels extended to the Pa- 
cific Ocean and "San Francisco." 
Venturing to the Southwest, the 
Aquettes chose Hawaii, "Pearl of 
the Sea," as their next stop. Return- 



ing to the mainland and crossing 
the continent they made stops on 
"Broadway Tonight" and observed 
"Moonlight in Vermont." Travel- 
ing southward through "Shenan- 
doah" to "Stars Fell on Alabama," 
the group concluded the program 
with the title number "This Is My 
Country," while unrolling a huge 
American flag.

Thomas, Virgin Islands; Fort De 
France, Marti nit] ue; La Guira, 
Venezuela; Aruba; Cartagena, Co- 
lumbia, Cristobal, Panama; Port 
Au Prince, Haiti; and finally Port 
Everglades, Florida. Dances in- 
cluded jazzy straw hat numbers as 
well as graceful ballet and toe

On Friday, March 24, a group 
ot" approximately thirty Gulf Park 
College students, accompanied by 
President and Mrs. William T. 
Sadler and Dr. Rupert H. Cooke, 
Vice President Emeritus, departed 
via National Airlines for Miami to 
begin a fourteen-day cruise in the 
Caribbean aboard the Frcderico C, 
sailing from Port Everglades, Flor- 
ida. The group was also accompa- 
nied by Mr. and Mrs. Byron 
Bovver and Mr. and Mrs. Roger 
W. Hampton. The group found 
life on the luxurious liner exciting 
as they \isited the loUowing ports 
of call: San Juan. St. Thomas, 
Martinique, Trinidad, La Guaira, 
Aruba, Cartagena, Panama, Kings- 
ion, and Port-Au-Prince. Heavily 
laden with souvenirs of their tra- 
\x-l, the cruise party returned to 
campus on y\pril 8. Although they 
were quickly thrown back into the 
routine of their studies, the memo- 
ries of their exciting adventures 
lingered . . . sometimes expressed 
in the strains of a song, an exotic 
dance or a straw hat to serve as a 
beach umbrella.

of many.

FACULTY APPRECIATION WEEK 



In April, Phi Theta Kappa spon- 
sored Faculty Appreciation Week 
at Gulf Park. AH students were 
encouraged to participate by doing 
thoughtiul things for their teach- 
ers, but the members of Phi Theta 
Kappa took the lead by placing 
rosebuds on the desks of all in- 
structors, furnishing coffee and do- 
nuts in the Faculty Lounge, and 
doing helpful things. The faculty 
readily caught the spirit and in- 
vited outstanding students to be 
guest teachers during the week. On 
Thursday members of the faculty 
were guests of Phi Theta Kappa 
for a barbecue luncheon at the 
pit in the picnic area by the 



Y-Hut. On Friday, the results 
of a student election were an- 
nounced. Mr. Laurie A. Drago, In- 
structor in History, was recognized 
as the "Instructor of the Year;" 
Mrs. Harriet (j. Smith, as the 
"Most Helpful Teacher;" Mr. Wil- 
liam Elbrecht as the "Most Popu- 
lar Teacher;" and Mrs. Betty Baker 
as the "Best Dressed Teacher." 
Colonel Eugene Wink was the re- 
cipient of a special "Oscar" be- 
cause of a strong vote in every cate- 
gory. 

Faculty Appreciation Week 
brought a feeling of mutual under- 
standing and respect to faculty and 
students.

To 

Miss Patricia 
Flanagan 

President 

of 

Student Government 

for 

1967-68 

Mi:s Patricia Flanagan of Pikc- 
ville, Kentucky, has been installed 
as the President of the Student 
Cjovernment Association of Gulf 
Park for the year 1967-68. Through- 
out the year she has exhibited good 
leadership potential through her 
work with Phi Theta Kappa, the 
national honorary scholastic frater- 
nity, her sorority, and as a repre- 
sentative in the Student Govern- 
ment. She was one of the delegates 
to the Mississippi Intercollegiate 
Council and to the Conference of 
the Southern Universities Student 
(jovernment Association. 

The Student Government has 
made much progress at Gulf Park 
since the Student Council was first 
formed in 1953, when students 
felt the need for student responsi- 
bility and accepted the challenge. 
Each year has been marked with 
some progress, and in 1966-67 a 
Student Government Association 
replaced the Student Council and 
fulfilled many hopes. Under the 
direction of its president. Miss 
Deane Poellnitz, the association 
met weekly and gathered initiative 

(Continued on Page 13)

STUDENT GOVERNMENT. . . 

(Continued from Page 12) 
to achiexc an active position in the 
college structure. Student Govern- 
ment representatives encouraged 
the expression of individual sug- 
gestions, ideas, and, of course, com- 
plaints. The year was marked by 
increased trust, confidence and 
understanding between the student 
bcjdy and the administration of the 
college. 

In March the Student Govern- 
ment receixed and studied a num- 
lier ot; suggestions which came 
through a Phi Theta Kappa sur- 
\xy. The results of this survey 
caused the Student Government 
Association to evaluate still further 
some of the rules and policies gov- 
erning student life on campus. Re- 
commendations were submitted to 
the President's Advisory Council 
and a number of them were ap- 
proved. These changes, the stu- 
dents felt, were a great step for- 
ward in creating the collegiate at- 
mosphere they desired. The impor- 
tant achievement was that students 
realized perhaps for the first time 
that they do have a voice in their 
government and that they should 
act through the Student Govern- 
ment Association. 

During the year 1966-67, the 
Gulf Park Student Government As- 
sociation became recognized on a 
state and regional level. Progress 
and new ideas for a more efficient 
system were results oi participation 
in the Mississippi Intercollegiate 
Council and the Southern Univer- 
sities Student Government Associ- 
ation. Conferences of these two or- 
ganizations permittted Gulf Park's 
student leaders to discuss, compare 
and evaluate the "student role" 
with student leaders in other col- 
leges and universities. Miss Li\'i 
Mullen, a member of the Gulf 
Park Student Government Associ- 
ation, was elected second vice pres- 
ident in charge of junior colleges 
for 1967-68 in the Mississippi Inter- 
collegiate Council. 

The progress seen during the 
past year presents a challenge to 
every student at Gulf Park to sup- 
port its Student Government As- 
sociation in all of its endeavors. 







END OF THE LONG WHITE LINE 



The last trip to Ship has always 
been fraught with both sadness and 
happiness, all mixed up together. 
It has been at the same time both 
symbolic and deeply personal. This 
trip signifies the close of a good 
year; the bond which has grown 
between the two classes; the "com- 
ing of age," so to speak, of the 
Junior Class; and often the break- 
ing of certain ties with the past 
that have been so much a part of 
(julf Park. This past, contained in 
tradition, has never been so strong- 
ly felt as at Ship. Reflected in the 
time honored serenade, the fort, 
the cannon, the lighthouse, and fi- 
nally, the hats, this past and present 
have become one. 



The trip of May i, 1967, was the 
same as others . . . and yet very 
special. The juniors were thorough- 
ly entertaining in a skit that mock- 
ed student-administration relation- 
ships. Then the serenade ■ — per- 
haps (jne of the most poignant of 
all of Ship's serenades. The day 
closed with an air ol finality, since 
by mutual consent of the Senior 
("lass of 1967, all seniors' hats were 
thrown at Ship Island . . . and this 
Senior Class has realized the reali- 
ty of the last ot the long white line. 

In 1967-68, Gulf Park will use 
the classifications, traditional to all 
colleges, of freshmen and sopho- 
mores.

ma Psi third place, while Delta

place recognition. Delta Sigma's 
art work claimed the top honor 
and the Scrapbook Award.

the highest over-all cumulative 
grade point average. Winning this 
trophy for the second year in a row 
was Theta Alpha. Second place 
went to Gamma Psi; and third to 
Delta Chi. 

NOW — the moment for which 
all had waited, and worked. To 
climax the evening. President Sad- 
ler "reluctantly" announced the 
Sorority of the Year to a breathless 
audience. Delta Chi was awarded 
third place and Delta Alpha sec- 
ond. After relating a story pertain- 
ing to awards. President Sadler 
climaxed his presentation with the 
old saying, "the South Shall Rise 
Again," referring to the sorority 
seated in the south end of the din- 
ing room. With this remark Betsy 
Lang went to accept the trophy for 
Theta Alpha. This moment actual- 
ly had special significance as Theta 
Alpha is the first sorority to hold 
the trophy for two consecuti\'e 
years.

pletely torn out and renovated. The entire plan of the suite is being- 
changed. There will be paneling, formica topped built-in furniture, ade- 
quate closet space, and new bathroom fixtures. This experiment is bemg- 
made through the generosity of parents whose daughters will live in 
the suite next year. 

Possibly alumnae would like to contribute toward the renovation 
of their old room in Hardy Hall. The cost, excluding labor which the 
college will provide, is estimated at $1,000 per room. A plaque will be 
placed in each suite, showing the names of the donors who make the
